Caring for people with Dementia and Alzheimer’s


Dementia is a personality robber it robs the person of their personality and senses. It takes away the person you once knew and leaves them helpless and in need of full time care.


There have been recent news and talk about the government putting more money and funds into Dementia and Alzheimer’s. In the UK alone, there a there are around 800,000 people with dementia and the disease costs the economy £23 billion a year. By 2040, the number of people affected is expected to double - and the costs are likely to treble.

What is Dementia?


Dementia is an umbrella term for many brain related diseases that affect the brain and involve loss of memory, confusion and deterioration of the brain. Alzheimer’s is the most common forms of dementia where each part of the brain slowly deteriorates over time. Vascular dementia is the next most common form of dementia and is where the blood supply to the brain is affected and causes symptoms such as loss of memory, seizures, depression and various other symptoms. frontotemporal  dementia  is another form and the term covers a range of specific conditions. It is sometimes called Pick's disease or frontal lobe dementia. It’s  a rarer form of dementia which affects the frontal lobes of the brain – situated behind the forehead – this controls things like behaviour and emotions, particularly on the right side of the brain. They also control language, usually on the left. The temporal lobes – on either side of the brain – have many roles. On the left side, these lobes control the understanding of words.  So symptoms of this type of dementia will vary from behaviour  problems, personality changes and difficulties with language. 
Other illness and diseases such as multiple sclerosis, motor neurone disease, Parkinson's disease and Huntington's disease can also act as triggers to dementia.
Dementia has so many strains and forms and it does affect people so differently.  Some people have it over years and gradually each year will get harder, whilst others it can be a fast thing and they deteriorate rapidly over months.


Care and Aid


How do I care for someone with Dementia?

Well it’s not a simple answer because everyone’s needs and requirements are so different. However many people feel comfortable in what they know such as their own surroundings in their home, Familiar faces and routines. Like you and me they still want to be independent and do things independently. So it’s important that as a carer or relation that you continue to encourage this as long as possible.


Aided Products
There are many house hold aids available on the market that can give users more aided help in doing things around the house and helping them to be independent..
